WOOHOO The Sydney Climbing Guide Vol1 is Available

The long awaited first volume of the Sydney Climbing Guide is now available as a printed guidebook. The print edition will save you having to print out and carry around lots of scrappy bits of computer paper or try and surf the web while at your local crag.

This first Volume covers everything south of the harbour, including the Sutherland Shire and the Eastern Suburbs, South West, Inner West and City.

It costs around $13 plus whatever postage lulu gouges you. Order some copies for your mates and the postage per book is much less. Gear stores and climbing gyms are welcome to bulk order and on-sell.

It's a cheap'n'nasty production, with black and white images and lots of spray/rave/personal bias/incorrect info/dodgy directions/etc that has taken much effort to compile.

The guide originated from pmonk's famous Sun Surf Sandstone website, and has been thoroughly updated. A humungous thankyou to everyone who contributed!

Go here and buy a copy:

It looks something like this:




If you find omissions, incorrect info or want to set the history right, the beauty of online guides that feed to printed guidebooks is that you can log onto the website and enter corrections, and the next edition is up-to-date!

About a year ago I had a bout of enthusiasm and entered everything from the Mike Law Smith guide and added the ACA updates at the time, but its hard to keep track of whats new on the ACA so didn't keep updating it. Still, you've got something to work with.

SHMG contents so far is...

Bungonia Gorge 76 climbs
Wollondilly
Perpendicular Rock 36 climbs
Lanagans Falls 53 climbs
Camerons Rocks 1 climbs
Wombeyan Caves
Mt Alexandra 85 climbs
Area 51 7 climbs
Bumble Bee Rocks
Mt Gibraltar 33 climbs
Wingello
The Loony Bin
Nerriga

There must be other stuff.

Hey Mr Pants, are you serious?

247 more guides needing/waiting to be produced?

Would that include a guide to the secret Rhum Dhu Supercrag?
